Stampeed Pass, Saturday 8/11

Looking to do the Easton to Greenwater ride over Stampede and Pyramid pass again this Saturday 08/11/12.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=814696

It's a little rough in places and dusty as all get out, but most rigs with decent ground clearance should be able to do it no problem.

Anybody interested in going, be at Scotts Dairy Freeze in North Bend at 10 am. https://plus.google.com/100323453883...ut?gl=us&hl=en

This sounds great

If I were back in NM, I'd be telling my BRO that I need to use his GU for a wk or so & tell the dog to find his doggles.

You put up very good RRs, have want to join in on some of these neat rides w/ the Ural guys.

OH MAN! You guys are going to have a pure "mother" of a blast.

You can count me in for a partial! Last time was a hoot for sure.

My new tent and a few other supplies should be here by then, and I was planning on heading out that way and starting on Stampeed pass and then peeling up some of those more rugged looking, less used paths to test out the camping gear on and bringing the old pup along. I'm not sure why, but he LOVES offroading.

I've been downloading the topo maps on the tablet for the area now that I know at least a little on the area. So hopefully this time around it'll be able to lead me to water. I'm kinda thinking of trying to map out LOTS of the little dead end paths and taking pictures of the end of each one and anything interesting about 'em. Especially the the little seasonal creeks/falls. Gotta love those!

This time I'm prepared. Got big can/bottle of filter oil/cleaner! Also, put wing nuts on the filter topper, and thumb screws with neoprene washers+plastic washers on top to keep the dust out and allow for quick access. Well, tool-less access anyway. :) Oh, and my Valve adjustments were still good, and I got some Redline to try out as well.

Well it looks like we have at least 3 Urals, where are all those custom and home built rigs? Its just some dirt roads, no need to be timid.


Motivational pictures from previous rides.

Neat ride & pics. Have a good time this weekend.
What's the deal with the denuded trees in the last pic?

There was a forest fire many years ago, being at around 5000' elevation the extreme winter weather conditions bleach and preserve the wood of the dead trees.

We may want to pick a different meet up site. The Fesival at Mt. Si is this Saturday and there will be road closures and mobs of people. Out by I-90 may be better

I agree, a better choice given the festival event..... Hoping I can make most of the ride, my granddaughter (age 12) is visiting and wants to come along. Dont know how long she can last, but we will sure try !!!

I think that in a couple of hours I'm gonna have a temporary solution to my blown out front shock. So keep your eyes open for a white 1150GS rig. If I'm late, I assume y'all are going over Stampede down to Lester? I should be able to catch you. After all, yer on Urals . . . prolly take you guys an hour to get from Tinkham to Hyak!

Edit: for you out-of-towners who stumble on this, Tinkham to Hyak is about 15 miles on a 70-mph interstate, but . . . it's all uphill. Bit of a struggle for them russian-bilt machines!
